Life is filled with a wide range of experiences that the Apostle Paul calls times of plenty and want. Times of plenty happens when we are experiencing an abundance of people and things. Times of want happens when we are experiencing an absence of people and things. The reason why contentment is such a sought after thing is because true inner contentment isn’t based on our life circumstances. The Apostle Paul teaches that contentment is both a secret and something you learn. It’s a secret because the source of true contentment isn’t obvious. It’s elusive. It’s also something you learn because we must discover that contentment isn’t based on anything in this physical world, but based only on being in Christ. The more we understand what it means to be in Christ and how the deep needs of our heart are met in Him, the more we will enter into the glorious freedom of contentment.
